A little bit better...farewell 2023
December 31, 2023
As the last few hours of the year slide by and soon 2023 is all in the past, I’ve been reflecting on my word for this past year.
A noun, a verb, an adjective, an adverb — it’s hard for me to imagine a “better” or more inspirational word for a year that was filled with transitions.
All year long, I kept reminding myself: “Gina, you can do better!” or “You can be better!”
So I did!
Better get to writing has seen the publication of my first illustrated children’s book.
Better double-down on your talents has had me teaching online creative writing classes.
Better try something new led to a great new opportunity with the University of Missouri.
Better get going has had me walking every day and ending the year in much better shape than I was at the beginning.
“Well, at least it’s better than it was” is what I tell myself when we finish cleaning the house.
There’s a new word on the horizon for 2024…but I think I’m going to carry better along with me in my heart for quite a long while.
